The act of locating. Not on the Oxford Dictionary or Wiktionary website. 
Probably along the lines of "invite" for "invitation."

The Utility Notification Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 
and accepts calls from contractors, homeowners, or anyone planning to 
dig. Locate requests are accepted over the phone, through a fax-a-locate 
program, or through the ITIC program. If you need to process a locate 
request, or need additional information about locates, you may contact 
the Utility Notification Center at any time.
